with Curt Golden and Sandra Bain Cushman.

This full-length residential seminar will present the basics of Guitar Craft. It is open to anyone who wishes to attend. No prior experience is required. This course will cover all of the prerequisite skills for participation in Guitar Craft, and is required of anyone who wishes to attend a Level One Guitar Craft Course with Robert Fripp. It is ideal for those wishing to make a beginning in Guitar Craft, as well as anyone with prior experience who feels the need to begin again. The focus will be on fundamental principles in the use of both hands, coordination and the direction of attention. Work is done on steel-string acoustic guitars, using a pick. The Alexander Technique will be presented as an avenue toward developing an intelligent and efficient use of the self, as applied to the skills of the guitar.

The course will be conducted by Curt Golden and others. Curt has long experience in Guitar Craft, going back to 1985. The kitchen will be headed up by an experienced Guitar Craft staff. Instruction in The Alexander Technique, headed up by Sandra Bain Cushman, will be an integral part of this course.
